1. Recognize when a resident's heart rate/pulse, blood pressure, oxygen level, weight loss, diabetes, pressure wounds, and other medical needs or concerns require a medical evaluation.
2. Describe what direct care actions should be completed so that every resident's care needs are identified and managed.
